not that I'm defending here but i actually had to read it a couple times. anyway, i think op's kid needs something a little more than a grounding. imo

Or go old school nun and break out the ruler. One rap on the knuckles can be quite effective, if my father and uncle are to be believed.

I agree. I would however make him stand outside with a sign that says something along the lines of "Im guilty of being a bully". I've seen articles about parents doing that when their children misbehave, and it seems to be effective. It humiliates them without physically hurting them.

There's a difference between discipline and bullying/abuse. What she's talking about is discipline; if your child decides to be a disrespectful, rude prat, that s/he is worthy of a spanking. As long as a parent doesn't beat their child senselessly and give them long-lasting injuries, then I believe physical punishment is okay.

I got spanked as a child and THAT didn't hurt me or leave lasting effects. I was, however, also slapped in the face, shoved into walls hard enough to get whiplash (actually went to the doctor for that), etc... and THAT did leave an impression. I still live with my parents but I hate being around them because they've always got a snide comment.

I was spanked as a child and have no resentment towards my parents. Calling us sick and unfit to have children is absurd; get the hell off your high horse.

#102, I was beaten as a child with many hard objects, quite frequently as I was a troublemaker, as did my brother (though not as much). It left absolutely no impression on me, I'm not dealing with depression or any mental disabilities people normally associate with this kind of "abuse". I still love my parents a great deal and respect them at the age of 15. Since you are also a fan of using the comments above, the other comments above you (while I don't know the whole story) have prob

@102 calling people names and being mean is bullying, and you shouldn't bully. Did you're parents not teach you this, or did you just not listen? Maybe a spanking would help to solidify this idea and straighten out your personality flaw, because being told this obviously is not enough for you.

Yes 102, I'm obviously a sick person for raising my children how my parents raised me, even though I turned out perfectly and love my parents with all my heart. You're obviously a dumbass for thinking that a "talk" will get your kids to behave. If it didn't hurt them they'll just think it's funny and do it again.

#102, To be fair, I think that no matter how you're raised, the general majority of people will be a complete prick to anyone who doesn't share their views and beliefs.

#138, I don't think you were spanked, I think you were abused. There is a difference. Also, if spanking is equal to failing as a parent, are you saying that centuries of parents before us have failed?

lmfao I'm a great student, and have never gotten in trouble with the law and that wasn't even a part of my argument. And no what I said isn't bullying it's stating facts. That is a CHILD, you are an ADULT. The adult is supposed to have more patience than the child and be able to control their kid in a mature way. Why don't you guys get off your high horse instead. I WAS ABUSED, not just a wooden spoon or a small spanking. I was thrown down, strangled, sat on to the point where I couldn't breath

boohoo cry me a river would you......this whole paragraph that you took the time to type out just explained that you were an emotional child and just couldnt take it.....parents punish us becayse they live us and dont want to see us hurt or in troible in any shape or form Im glad my mom spanked me and I dont not by any chabce resent my parents if anything I love them even more!

You were abused not ounished there is a difference between Abuse and Spankings why would you tell random strangers your sob story on a social media site where people with different ki ds of opinions come on!

Let me guess, you're going to send your kids to their rooms for an hour or some other shit like that. Cuz usually that doesn't work. And I'm guessing you weren't spanked as a child you were physically abused, there is a difference. If you were physically abused (beaten for no reason, sent to the hospital) then I'm sorry for that. But if you were just spanked (slap on the butt, or smack on the hand, or spoon the the butt/hand) then SUCK IT THE FUCK UP!! I was spanked before and it taught me not t

I'm not saying you weren't abused, it's very clear there was something sinister going on. But a simple spanking is not abuse. A spanking doesn't involve such horrible violence, if anything it's a last resort. I was spanked as a child and have no resentment towards my parents for it. I was given plenty of opportunity to behave myself and was only ever spanked if I refused any and all of those chances. One or two good swats is usually enough to calm anyone down. I may have hated it then but

I was spanked as a kid. I learned from it, never made the same mistake twice. I don't hold any resentment towards my dad for doing so. My dad stopped spanking me when I got in middle school because I was well behaved and didn't do anything to get in trouble. When I got to high school, my parents trusted me to the point where they didn't hesitate to let me go practically anywhere with friends or just go hangout; all they asked of me was to send them a text if I changed locations and to let them k

I was spanked as a child. I do not resent my parents and the only result is I have a little thing called respect for other people

When I was a child I got spanked,and grounded and all the usual punishments, and I have turned out to be a normal member of society. But the fact that my parents would slap me in the face or hit me with a belt, that really hurt me, and not just physical pain, emotional pain, and I still resent them for it. So moral of the story is it's okay to punish your children as you see fit, just do not beat/abuse them.

Jeez....Few people live through that type of brutality. Hopefully you feel better and definitely punish your son for that.
